The Legends of Koguryo Rediscovered concert in Kyoto
My body and soul became fully liberated from any burdens and I felt like flying in the space as I put on what I named Koguryo’s costume that I had created with marbling at the inner garden of Koma gallery Café at Yasaka. Just before the opening of our concert, every ticket was sold out and I was filled with deep gratitude. Then being totally refreshed the Legends of Koguryo Rediscovered concert had started. The music and video by Mr. Idaki Shin expressed an energy that had built a new dynasty out of nothing and Great Being that has been providing humankind its miraculous power. This miraculous moment of encounter with Great Being more often than not made me envision the truth of history all at once. As I expressed this in a poem I realized that the entire world was about to change and the dimension of human life would also change into a new one. This process would surely lead to achieving the deepest wish of humankind throughout history and create an authentic peace all over the world. When each person became awakened to the truth the world would naturally change. People would come to realize a truly human life and our glorious future. To my surprise, in Japan so many people questioned how on earth a concert might be able to realize a truly peaceful world, however, in many foreign countries including one that had just ended years of warfare, the legends of Koguryo Rediscovered concert has been greatly appreciated and invited to take place as they knew that authentic peace within people’s internality was the key for realizing a peaceful world. I was confident that everything became clear and without acknowledging the richness at heart, no person could build a truly human country that would allow everybody brilliantly to shine and live a happy life. I always recalled in my mind that the former president of the republic of Iran said at his lectures that took place in various countries all over the world that before accumulating problems and conflicts of the world the outer circumstances could never be changed for realizing a peaceful world without changing each people’s internality. Our concert would truly allow spectators to be awakened all at once to the truth and richness of our internality that was the source of vigor, health , creativity, inspiration and discovery. The repetition of the same patterns would never open up our future. Changes made within our internality were indispensable for everybody on earth. I realized this at my concert held in Kyoto. Thank you very much.
